  • this week angry man tries to open email holograph takes on human form and the X

  • Factor reaches Nemo

  • I've had enough enough of old tech to going obsolete so it seems even desktop

  • computers days are numbered

  • oh right let's see what they got for us this year the Consumer Electronics Show

  • in Las Vegas is the place to find out it's where the new products and concepts

  • are launched for 2018 and some of them might just change the world one of the

  • highlights of CES for me is always finding out how bendy LG is this year

  • previously they've been slightly bendy and then they were quite bendy this year

  • I think they've nailed it it's a 65 inch rollup 4k display and the image quality

  • really is very very good and it does roll completely up into remitted ly a

  • fairly chunky box it's an oh le D display the only display

  • tech that can be fully flexible the circuitry is built on a segmented back

  • so it's a bit like a retractable garage door you can actually choose how far the

  • screen rolls out as well as a widescreen TV it can be used as a thin notification

  • bar a wider format 21 by 9 cinema screen and of course nothing at all the

  • argument is that you can make use of the space behind it when you're not using it

  • and of course in South Korea a lot of people live in high-rise blocks of flats

  • can you imagine lugging a 65 inch TV up the stairs or even getting into the lift

  • much easier if you can roll it down into a handy tube elsewhere there are plenty

  • of other things to see and play with here at CES here's a phone from Chinese

  • company vivo which doesn't have a fingerprint scanner on the back

  • that's because it has one built into the screen the O LED display shines light

  • onto your thumb and an optical scanner buried underneath registers what it sees

  • here's the link flow Fit 360 a necklace with three cameras that together live

  • stitch to make a 360 video so you can record a true first-person view of your

  • experience so others can feel like they were truly there to

  • now it's important to catch the eye at shows like these which is hopefully what

  • this thing is doing this is the hyper vision display by kee Nomo and it's

  • capable of projecting life-size images high above the show floor all right sexy

  • thank you that's enough from you now listen here's the science bit here we've

  • got 24 rapidly spinning LED strips and as they go around they're flashing

  • different colors which gives you the illusion of a persistent image and in

  • the flesh I have to say it does really look rather good

  • all right don't build up your part old super great okay enough flimsy flimsy

  • lamb from me let's get Lara lonesome now with some of the big announcements from

  • this year's show and what a week it's been with news from Tech's biggest

  • players including the likes of Intel saying it will release software fixes to

  • repair security issues surrounding its chips we've had press events that have

  • gone wrong with disobedient robots from LG Khloe is now gonna talk to me Chloe

  • doesn't like be evidently and Sony's robot dog wasn't that responsive either

  • a ball was an autonomous robot and will quickly become a member of your family

  • by table big nor be there meanwhile the lack of female keynote speakers has

  • caused controversy amongst attendees a situation which has led to raised

  • eyebrows compounded by the inclusion of robotic pole dancers at a strip club

  • near the event and on the show floor as usual TVs were everywhere

  • but this one really stood out Samsung wall is a hundred and forty six inches

  • wide and can be made even larger by adding modules

  • and finally Toyota's unveiled its new autonomous a pallet vehicle it can be

  • used for ride-sharing deliveries or even a moving storefront that comes directly

  • to you that was Lara now one of the big themes at the moment is wireless

  • charging that normally means putting your phone on a path but it is also

  • possible to send power through the air one of the problems with wireless power

  • is that that power is sent in every direction at the same time so wherever

  • your device is it only receives a tiny fraction of that power well here's a

  • system that gets around that by sending focused beams of power to one particular

  • point the power transmitter can be built into ceiling tiles walls tables or parts

  • of the furniture all it needs to know is which direction to point the power in

  • now here's the science bit to work that out

  • the device needing the power sends out low power signals in all directions most

  • of which are blocked by nearby objects but the signals that do bounce around

  • and reach the transmitter come in at particular angles now by sending the

  • power back at exactly the same angles that power bounces about and eventually

  • gets back to the device the makers told us that they can achieve

  • 2 watts of power at a distance of one meter which impressively is about half

  • the power of a smartphone charger I'm using this light to detect the power

  • beams between the transmitter and the blank box receiver think about your home

  • where you have smoke detectors think about that smoke detector that starts

  • beeping at night because it runs out of battery you can power there to remotely

  • never have to charge the battery again but with high power beams Lansing about

  • your home you may be wondering easy safe this technology is entirely

  • safe and we look to get FCC approval for safety that certifies the technology as

  • safe so if you have accepted Wi-Fi into your home

  • accepting code the technology wouldn't be the same in the future the power

  • receivers could be made into any shape including that of a double-a battery and

  • that means that ordinary devices could be converted to wireless power without

  • any modification at all for a long time bricks and water shops have been trying

  • to keep up with online retailers who have the added benefits of being able to

  • keep track of their customers habits as well as provide very easy ways of paying

  • well here's one way that we could see some of those features brought into the

  • real world by retrofitting existing stores I poly just uses off-the-shelf

  • cameras one up here to track the customers and others underneath here to

  • take a look at the products and the customers interactions with them but the

  • real work is happening here in the AI algorithms where it's recognizing all

  • the products off the shelf and the customers interactions with them but the

  • AI is using the main camera here to keep track of what customers are doing

  • throughout the store it can recognize faces identify clothes and follow their

  • movements through the combination of the customer being recognized and the

  • products that they're picking up being identified when they get to the checkout

  • they don't even need to scan the items they just need to pay and if they agree

  • to being remembered for next time then all they need to do is go and pick

  • up their products and they can take them away

  • one thing which isn't making such a big noise this week is virtual reality is VR

  • in the last chance

  • billions have been poured into VR but the headsets just aren't selling in the

  • way the companies had hoped there are multiple problems the setup is too

  • difficult content is not compelling enough and unless it's treated very

  • carefully the VR experience can and has made me feel sick the manufacturers are

  • not going to give up on this though the oculus go will be launched around March

  • now that's a bit like Samsung's gear VR I mean you don't need a phone for it to

  • work it's all built in and it will be around $200 HTC announced here that

  • they're to release the vive Pro later this year it's a 3k headset which will

  • improve resolution significantly and keep the vibe ahead of the field and

  • while oculus allows three degrees of movement which is that way that way and

  • that way HTC has just launched its vive focus in

  • China which allows six degrees of movement

  • which is that that and that and also three dimensions of movement in space

  • and that's using inside out tracking which means there are no sensors or

  • lighthouses telling you where the headset is the headset itself works out

  • where it is in the environment now this is the next level for VR

  • still with magic leap releasing its augmented reality hololens alike later

  • this year and with tons of AR activity here like this from horizon a cheap flat

  • pack way of building your own AR headset using a cardboard kit and a phone VR

  • continues to face a tough battle with AR which just seems a bit more ready to

  • make its mark if you ask me oh I feel better for that anyway it's time to move

  • on now here comes Lara with some high-tech ways to stop thieves this

  • year's show a fair few anti-theft devices have been launched and I've got

  • my hands on some of them

  • and this is a prototype burglar prevention system it aims to replicate

  • what a house looks and sounds like when your home so through the app you can

  • preset it with the way that you live your life when you're going to be

  • playing music watching a film talking in the kitchen and when the lights are

  • going to be going on and off or you could simply wild about what's happening

  • in the house eventually the plan would be that a group of synchronized devices

  • could work through the house to make it look like natural movement from room to

  • room but of course that would add to the cost this is a smart safe now I have to

  • admit when I received it I did think this is very light very flimsy and how

  • could it possibly be a safe because you could just steal this if you have

  • something valuable inside but anyway it seems that the technology here could

  • actually be used in bigger stronger safes and this particular model is

  • possibly better for putting medicine in or just something that you want to keep

  • away from the kids or other people visiting your house so how it works

  • it of course can x-pyr a smartphone app which means that you can remotely open

  • the safe should you wish to actually do that and you'll also receive alerts if

  • anybody tries to tamper with it so let's set it up somewhere that it can remain

  • in a steady place this particular model has wings that extend to hold it into

  • place so if I put it here at the back of the shelf

  • and do this let me put something in here let me try and cancel with it and see

  • what happens

  • it's quite firmly attached although a little bit more forcefully pull it out

  • yeah there we go all right although I'm off with a sesh

  • Oh looks like it could be quite easy to open as well Omar you've got any ideas

  • let me try and find something that might be a bit better for security it's not

  • just about the home though this bag aims to keep your belongings safe when you're

  • out and about so if you're on a train or a plane and you've had to leave your bag

  • somewhere else then you might want to activate this tamper alert which uses

  • this RFID card to turn it on and off so if anybody tries to open your bag and it

  • sounds like that but if the issue is actually you forgetting things then this

  • loss prevention device aims to come to the rescue

  • now you can attach it to any given item and the company's software will learn

  • your habits so what time and where you take that item and if you do something

  • that seems out of the ordinary they can send your reminder before you've even

  • had a chance to forget it eventually they're even hoping to be

  • able to do things like access travel details through your email so you could

  • get a reminder to pick up your passport without running the risk of leaving

  • without it the device does still seem a little bit big right now but they are

  • trying to get a smaller version ready ahead of launch great if it works which

  • was generally the theme with most of what I tested that was Lara and this is

  • the valo copter it's a passenger drone made by a German

  • company and this one actually has flown but constantly reminded that the future

  • of transport is going to be amazing here at CES although there's no guarantee

  • that that is true case in point remember the Faraday future electric car

  • no show business anyway while Faraday gets its future in

  • order enter Buyten now this is a startup staffed by some pretty impressive people

  • who've come up with basically a computer on wheels will this car actually work

  • well Dave Lee was given exclusive access to it before and during CES

  • now I'll be honest this wasn't the most thrilling test-drive of my life worried

  • about being spotted before their big CES unveiling the team behind the bytes and

  • car only let us drive slowly around an unmarked warehouse just off the Las

  • Vegas Strip but it was very interesting the company has created what's

  • essentially a mobile supercomputer they say it has more in common with your

  • smartphone than it does a typical car and I agree for the first time I've been

  • impressed by a car not because of its performance on the road but because of

  • its operating system though the reason behind button is we want to be the

  • company bringing into the market the first real smart car vehicle has been

  • designed and created by a suitably qualified team made up of former BMW and

  • Apple engineers inside you'll see the dashboard has been completely reimagined

  • the gesture control system does look a bit imprecise and quite fiddly not ideal

  • when you're driving along a motorway at 70 miles an hour this looks like a

  • really distracting driving situation so isn't this actually quite dangerous to

  • have this in front of you so the key is about customization when you are in

  • drive mode we will actually disable certain features you won't be able to

  • get in to watch videos for instance what we want to try to build is a platform

  • where when there is autonomous driving all occupants in the car including the

  • driver have the ability to interact some of the most exciting features of the

  • bytes in-car actually going to be disabled until we live in a world of

  • fully autonomous driving so perhaps think of this vehicle as bridging the

  • gap between our dumb driving past and our smart driving future now of course

  • you can't reveal a car at CES without an expensive lavish launch event this one

  • went by without a hitch and people seemed impressed it's a really

  • interesting idea but they're really trying to target it at an affordable

  • price point $45,000 about half the cost of the Model S when that came out again

  • two hundred to three hundred five miles of range so they're hitting all the

  • right marks and adding all this cool technology and so I think they've got a

  • pretty good message here if you think all this seems a little familiar you're

  • right this was the scene at last year's CES when I covered new car company

  • Faraday future back then they told us everything was going swimmingly and that

  • their big new factory was going to be built soon but in less than a year the

  • factory in Nevada has been scrapped and while the company assists it's still

  • pressing ahead Faraday future is in serious danger of becoming a thing of

  • the past so what will happen to bite them the

  • biggest challenge facing them right now is to do with charging Tesla has more

  • than 8,000 superchargers for its cars dotted all over the world

  • bitin has none they think Tesla should share theirs and when it comes to

  • actually making the car bitin is building its own factory in Nanjing

  • China and they've promised their car will be put into production by the end

  • of 2019 and one-day cost $45,000 I guess we'll just have to wait and see how that

  • goes

  • that was Dave Lee and there'll be plenty more transport on next week's click in

  • the meantime I'm having the nails done this is the o2 nails printer choose any

  • image you want and they'll print it onto your nail of course I chose a picture of

  • myself okay Richard Taylor and Nick quick be that

  • refreshing so this device is actually creating a vacuum in my mouth it's

  • sucking at my gums but the same time circulating a flow of water around my

  • teeth it's intended for users with reduced mobility or people that in

  • general have difficulty brushing their teeth because it replaces need to brush

  • and floss - the guys are working on integrating sensors into future devices

  • so that oral hygienist or dentists will be able to diagnose and treat for gum

  • disease and it's quite ticularly - this is mirror and it's being marketed as the
